Effect of Hyperbaric Oxygen on Neurologic Sequelae and All-Cause Mortality in Patients with Carbon Monoxide Poisoning: A Meta-Analysis of Randomized Controlled Trials.

CONCLUSIONS These results indicate that HBO therapy significantly reduces the risk of memory impairment compared to NBO, but 2 sessions of HBO might not be better for memory impairment than 1 session of HBO. PMID: 31606731 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract Carbon monoxide poisoning (COP) may increase the risk of myocardial infarction. We conducted a study to investigate the effects of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) on the risk. We used the Nationwide Poisoning Database in Taiwan to identify COP patients diagnosed between 1999 and 2012. We compared the risk for myocardial infarction between patients with and without HBOT by following up through 2013 and identified the independent predictors of myocardial infarction. The risk of myocardial infarction in the 7278 patients with HBOT was lower than in the 18,459 patients without HBOT, but this difference did n...

Conclusion: Although patients who had attempted charcoal burning suicide had a low mortality rate (3.0%), globus pallidus necrosis was not uncommon (59.7%) in this population. Further studies are warranted.

e C Abstract Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) has been shown to improve tissue hypoxia, neovascularization and ischemia reperfusion injury and reduce pathologic inflammation in various clinical settings and was proposed to be a game changer in treatment of burns. Improved and faster wound healing as well as a reduction of morbidity and mortality after thermal and concomitant carbon monoxide poisoning are expected. In defiance of the observed benefits for burn wounds and carbon monoxide poisoning in animal models and few randomized controlled trials there is an ongoing controversy regarding its use, indic...

CONCLUSIONS: Therefore, it is important to recognize cigarette smoke as a significant source of carbon monoxide exposure. SCIENTIFIC SIGNIFICANCE: While the negative effects of cigarette smoking are often perceived as being chronic and only coming to fruition after numerous years of exposure, it is important for both physicians and patients to recognize the possibility for potentially life-threatening acute toxicity secondary to carbon monoxide exposure.

Authors: Goggins CA, Khachemoune A Abstract Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) is used in the management of a wide array of disease states, including acute thermal burn injuries, carbon monoxide poisoning, and decompression sickness, to name a few. Although HBOT is approved by the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society for the treatment of only 14 conditions, it has been used "off-label" in the management of a variety of dermatological diseases. This review investigates the utilization of HBOT in dermatology and appraises the evidence behind its use. We focus on the role of HBOT in treating necrotizing sof...

Rationale: Carbon monoxide (CO) poisoning can cause severe damage to the nervous system, and can also cause serious damage to organs, such as the heart, kidneys, and lungs. CO damage to myocardial cells has been previously reported. This can lead to serious complications, such as myocardial infarction. Patient concerns: A 47-year-old female patient complained of sudden chest pain for 30 minutes. Before admission, the patient had non-radiating burning chest pain after inhalation of soot. Diagnosis: An electrocardiogram showed that myocardial ischemia was progressively aggravated, manifested by progressive ST-segme...

AbstractInhalation injury is often associated with burns and significantly increases morbidity and mortality. The main toxic components of fire smoke are carbon monoxide, hydrogen cyanide, and irritants. In the case of an incident at a nuclear power plant or recycling facility associated with fire, smoke may also contain radioactive material. Medical treatments may vary in different countries, and in this paper, we discuss the similarities and differences in the treatments between China and Germany. Carbon monoxide poisoning is treated by 100% oxygen administration and, if available, hyperbaric oxygenation in China as well...
